About Jon

It seems obligatory in most “about me” sections to mention I went to seminary and grad school.

Now that that’s out of the way:

I was born into a Christian household. My father was, and still is, a pastor. I learned at a young age to respect God’s word and the good traditions passed down to me. I’ve never seen myself as anything beyond a common person making his way through this world, stumbling at times, but walking straighter and straighter with God’s help. 

Christ came into my life when I was six years old. This became more real to me in my teenage years when the normal questions teenagers ask loom large. 

In college I became active in student ministry and haven’t stopped. I also learned that I enjoyed music and love to write songs and serve at church in that capacity. 

Perhaps my most memorable times are spent outside- Hiking, Cycling, Hunting, Fishing, etc. You name it if it’s outdoors and I probably have tried it or plan to. 

I married the love of my life in 2016 and she puts up with all my shenanigans. 

That’s a little about me. For more, check out the podcast!
